Quilty Article – January/February 2014

This year is getting off to a great start! The January/February issue of Quilty includes my first feature article. To see my name listed among these other amazing quilting celebrities is a little surreal to say the least. (I’m just glad they shared a decent picture of me!)

Quilty January/February 2014 Issue

Quilty is one of my favorite magazines, so when Mary Fons asked me to write an article about online quilting classes I jumped at the chance! It was interesting to see how they took my words and edited it to fit their magazine style and voice.

I hope you get a chance to read it and let me know what you think. For anyone new to Quilty, you can subscribe to the magazine here and you can read more about my cover quilt from last month’s issue here.

For a girl who absolutely hated writing papers in college, I guess you can say I’ve come a long way. I just needed to find the right topic! :-)

    I just read that yesterday. :-) I’ve been in the media several times and yes, the editing is always very interesting. The one that changed the most was Woman’s World – I actually laughed at it when I read it, and it was supposed to be a tear-jerker.

    Congratulations for all the love and exposure!
